Resigning Khabibulin and Keeping Whitney
 
Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 2m
Some consideration to keeping Ryan Whitney for Oilers playoff push (in-house rental) and signing Khabibulin for another year. #tradecentre

The Oilers are in that awkward spot where they're too good to sell and too bad to buy.

Keeping these guys makes sense for that reason I guess.

realistically neither of them would bring in a fortune if traded so with that in mind i agree they are better off to keep both and try to see what they can do down the stretch

Ridiculous, they have no chance to win the cup, they might as well get rid of two players who will never bring them one.

Not much point in grabbing picks after the first round if you're Tambo :sarcasm:

I think the goal is playoffs for now.

I don't know how to feel about this , I do want to trade whitney for a younger cheaper dman who can play this year but at the same time he has looked good as of late :/

I think that sums up the 'HF mantra' concisely more than anything else I read here.

I think in EDM the playoffs are the goal for now..wouldn't you think? Baby steps here. As an outsider it would be refreshing to see EDM actually think about the present rather than just try to dump everything for the future like they always do. If they make the playoffs this year is a success.

If EDM trades Whitney to BOS for lets say goalie Niklas Svedberg (a Euro vet having an excellent rookie season in Providence with a $1M cap hit), they don't need to worry about re-signing Khabi. That's the type of roster management decision Tambellini has to weight against keeping the team intact for the playoff run.

In addition, this could also be one of those management planted story in hopes of motivating the potential suitors like BOS to actually give up a guy like Svedberg.
